Success at Debating Competition

Congratulations to Krish L (U6JCC), Lucas S (U6TCF) and Vikram M (U6RS) on qualifying for the second round of the English Speaking Union Mace Competition, which is the oldest and largest debating competition for schools in England. They were in a strong heat that also included Harrow School, Swakeleys School for Girls, Whitmore High School, Hewens College and Featherstone High School.

In the debate, they opposed the motion: “This house would ban the use of digital manipulation in advertising, including social media ad content.” Krish spoke eloquently, providing philosophical reasons for opposition, while Vikram effectively presented the economic case. Lucas summed up the arguments succinctly and clearly articulated the points of clash with the other team.

Well done to our pupils on what was a very polished performance.
